What does the 103 offer compared to the hook up with a Darbee while watching cable or satellite?

I have the Darbee in the chain. But the Oppo has the video process Qdeo by Markell that upscales my cable to 1080p and it does it very well. It looks like blu ray quality. It's really good and the 3D conversion makes my cable looks good too since its no ghosting and the depth can be turned up high

The Darbee looks the same to me as when the W7000 is switched to 3 on the detail enhancement setting.

3 looks too grainy to me, its over the top to me. I like 2 sometimes for 3D but I settle for 1 for 2D. When its at 0, it looks too soft. I keep the Darbee at 40. Both works well with the Oppo video processing too
post #2646 of 3788
I have directv going through the 103 and then out through a Darbee. Perfect combination I think. And j2037, I think the Darbee is somehow smoother than the benq's detail enhancer. The Oppo 103, and the Darbee to the w7000 are all a great combo I think, I'm really happy with them. I think Santa may be adding a Denon 3313ci to the mix so hopefully that will pump everything up another notch. Anyone else have the 3313?

Nice to here you like it, planing on getting one after Xmas. Right now I am using a DVDO Edge green and find its upscaling very weak.

I need to change my avatar, but this hobby is good at hurting my pockets.
post #2652 of 3788
I am about 600hrs in on my original bulb and I am noticing evenly spaced horizontal lines during white scenes.Has anyone else noticed this. I have a reference fixed screen , and there were no lines before so I don't think its the screen.It isn't to much of a big deal but bugs me non the less.
post #2653 of 3788

I just purchased one of these from Amazon and was looking for a little advice. This unit has a dead silent iris and  the lens is great as text is very sharp across the whole screen. The problem is a small dust blob on the top right portion of the screen. I can't stop  looking for it when ever there's a dark scene. So my question is, whats the best way to return this to Amazon. Should I return as defective or I just don't want/need it anymore. I just don't want to have to go thru BenQ for warranty work on a brand new unit.

 

Also, I am using this with Comcast cable and a Oppo bdp-103, and on all picture  and color temp settings the  IRE setting is grayed out. Is this right? On my Benq6000 it's not. Btw its a hdmi connection.

 

Thanks, Bill

If you choose defetive Amazon will either send another or you can get a refund. They will also pay ffor shipping and arrange for UPS to pickup your projector. Very painless to do.
I would deffenitly send it back to Amazon and not deal with Benq.

Thanks tigerfan33. I will send back as defective.

post #2656 of 3788
bill1908, I think the Benq cannot get dust blob because it's a sealed path to the optics. There is something else going on with your Benq.

I'm sure its dust or debris. It probably happened in assembley. It's in the light path. It was there from the first start up.

post #2658 of 3788
That sucks just call Amazon and they will replace it for you good luck.

Oppo was forced to remove it because of DCRM rules. You can make a MKV file and play it on the Oppo.

that's what I been doing. I have to do mkv sbs files of 3D.
post #2661 of 3788
so i just got my replacement (#5) from benq, and it's a oct 2012 build date with firmware 1.00, which others have confirmed to be the new 1.03. can anyone with the new 1.00 verify that their dynamic iris option is grayed out now while viewing 3d content? seems odd that they'd remove that as a feature.
post #2662 of 3788

I just sent one back that was also a oct. build. The dynamic iris was greyed out on this one to. Also, I couldn't change any of the preset modes or color temps when in 3d . In 3d  it always showed it was in anamorphic and you can't change any of these setting either. I also couldn't change the ire setting as it was greyed out too. I am using a hdmi connection.

I have a question please, when I had W7000, I was severely nauseated all the time I had it. What causes nausea by projectors? High contrast, brightness or screen size?

when I used 3D on my Acer H5360, I was very nauseated and became sick twice until I figured out it was the 3D. Then, on my JVC RS40 & 55, it gave me eye fatique and I constantly fell asleep on movies. However, on the W7000 I don't have any problems at all. I don't use the same glasses, I use the Optoma ZD201s.

I was testing both 2D and 3D, so I am not sure which one could it be. I had True Depth glasses, were they the same glasses you had?
post #2666 of 3788
The other glasses were ultra clear, the cheapest dlp glasses
post #2667 of 3788
Hi.

Can anyone tell me how does the projector switch from one mode to the other? I mean, if your in a menu of a media player that runs at 60fps and you start a movie that runs at 24fps, how does the projector switch from one fps to the other? Does it take a long tome to do it?

I have an Infocus SP8602 and that is taking a weary long time, like 10 secs or more to switch modes with an annoying blue screen the whole time.

I would also like to be able to alter the "film mode" setting which is greyed out, does anyone know why it's greyed out/how to change it?

I had this same problem when I had a Mistubishi HD1000u. I switched to an Infocus 7210 and the problem went away. My thought is that it had to do with the color wheel speed of the projector. The Infocus had a faster color wheel speed. My headaches and nausea went away when I switched to it.

I think you are correct. Because even with LG HW300T LED 300 lumen I had this reaction but with less severity. I should have tried Dynamic mode.
